There's no food that's quite as fun to eat as pie pops. Sweet or savory fillings nestled between two flaky pie crusts and attached to a stick for easy consumption... If you say that that doesn't appeal to you, you're obviously lying. Pie pops have all of the practicality of hand pies and the fun portability of a sweet lollipop. However, good pie pop recipes are a bit difficult to find. That's where Easy as Pie Pops: Small in Size and Huge on Flavor and Fun by Andrea Smetona, the founder of Cakewalk Desserts, comes in!


This cookbook is full of delicious recipes for pie pops, both sweet and savory. The first two thirds of the book or so is dedicated to pie pops with sweet fillings, like fruits, fudge, and toffee.  While other pie pop recipes may take shortcuts with their fillings, every recipe in this cookbook has a pie filling that you make completely from scratch. While that may seem complicated or even intimidating, the recipes are really easy to follow (even for someone who has had limited experience with making pie pops like me).


The last part of the book is split between savory pie pops (like a chicken pot pie-flavored pie pop recipe), cake pops, and tea cakes. While it may seem strange at first to have cake pops and tea cakes in a cookbook about pie pops, they actually fit really well because they're also wonderful finger foods that are easy to make for and share with a crowd. Plus, they would make the perfect companions to a batch of pie pops.


While I love all of the recipes in this cookbook (and have a hard time deciding which ones I should make first), the aspects that I like best about Easy as Pie Pops are the large, beautiful photos that accompany each recipe and the small section at the beginning of the book that teaches the best techniques for making pie pops. As I mentioned before, I haven't had a lot of experience with making pie pops so I really like how, before diving into any recipes, the author breaks down the best ways to assemble, fill, and seal pie pops. Establishing technique early on makes following the recipes in the cookbook so much easier to do.


Easy as Pie Pops has so many wonderful recipe ideas that you won't be able to decide which is your personal favorite. Bakers who love to make cute sweets or bite-sized treats should most definitely check out this lovely cookbook.
